    I've seen pictures of at least half of the top 250 beers.

    Choklat doesn't belong in Top 250, but Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout does. Southern Tier = artificial flavor.

    I haven't had it yet, but I have a feeling I'm going to agree with you. Southern Tier'd. Love me some Sammy's.

    I've had 20 of the top 50 with about 12-15 of those in the cellar. Too lazy to go beyond that.

    Im at 60, with at least another 15-20 that are pretty available any time I would like to partake. Only had a few Cantillon beers so that doesnt help seeing is how they have about 20 beers on that list.

    I know that list computes rankings a lot of different ways (one of which being number of reviews), but there is literally nothing more laughable that Stone Enjoy By being a good 30 spots over Matt. Not just that they are different styles, but one is extremely average and the other is a work of art.

    It's been about a year since I first "ticked" and reviewed by first beer. I had just gotten into craft this time of the year, 2013. Currently at 127/250.

    I've had 55, with 3 more sitting in the ol' beer closet. Only 3 out of the top 10. I feel like that's pretty good though considering I only had distro for about 20 of those and I only started actively trading and going to bottleshares in the last year.

    Cantillon has 11 beers on the list, Hill Farmstead has 16. I've witnessed a bottle of Cantillon in person but it was being offered up for trade. I've probably never been within two states of a bottle of Hill Farmstead.

    Anyone know when the list was last updated? Was just recently as 71, now at 66. Another 16 in the cellar, plus hopefully at least 5-6 more from my current round of trades.

    I believe the list is updated continuously.

    Currently? I've had 65 and have another 12 in the cellar.

    That being said, it seems like any beer that is within 0.01 of the bottom could drop of the list at any given time. There are 10 I've had and one in my cellar that are in that situation.

    So really, I've had 65 + 10-12

    PS - I like comparing to the Beers of Fame list better, as I've had 61 with another 14 in the cellar (with six of the 61 being on the bottom of the list and at risk to drop off).

    56, with over a dozen in the cellar. I hadn't reviewed these rankings (apparently) in a while, because I remember Troegs Nugget Nectar being in the Top 50 within the past few years (now 78!). I guess we could call that progress, because NN is as good as ever.

    My best count is around 50 give or take a few. Seeing that the total number of beers I've tried is around 500, looks like I've had alot of crap. But the real reason is my style selection and patience. Big on IPAs, sparse on other styles. And I will not wait on a line for even 5 minutes for beer so I don't get many whales.

    I'm at 61, and I can get ahold of a few pretty easy. Though for anything 12%+ I need to trade or travel...

    Only 20, I thought it would be higher. Their is a lot of great beer not on that list. 2 more on the way. We should have lists broken down by genre.
